Developmental disabilities affect approximately 17% of children younger than 18 years of age in the United States.* They are a diverse group of severe chronic conditions that are due to mental and/or physical impairments, and may affect a single area of development (specific developmental disorders) or several developmental areas (pervasive developmental disorders). With early intervention, most specific developmental disorders can be accommodated and overcome. People with developmental disabilities can experience problems with major life activities such as language, mobility, learning, self-help, and independent living.
